Many folks in Nevada know that when it comes to the various modes of transportation, nothing beats motorcycles for combining speed and fresh air. Motorcycles can be both a fast and efficient method of getting from point A to point B and back again. Unfortunately, some people have suffered serious and even fatal injuries while riding motorcycles.
We discussed one of these cases here last week. Reports indicated that an SUV driver turned in front of a motorcycle rider, knocking the motorcyclist to the ground. The motorcyclist was transported to the hospital but was pronounced dead. The SUV driver was uninjured in the accident.
Inattentive drivers of larger vehicles can wreak havoc on motorcyclists throughout the Las Vegas area. Many drivers will insist they did not see a motorcycle despite the motorcyclist’s not speeding and otherwise obeying the traffic laws. Sadly, many drivers do not take the time to keep a proper lookout for motorcyclists.
Left-turn accidents – where a motorist executing a left turn collides with a motorcyclist – are one of the commonest sources of injury for motorcyclists. These accidents are often the result of a lack of attention on the part of the turning motorist.
